Mumblin' John




These are rough demos created by folk singer John Kays. They were recorded in May of 1987 except for "Ballad of Steve" and "Face of an Angel" which were recorded in November of 1993.
All words and music are by John except "Heaven's Child", words by Randy Wright. In "Ballad of Steve" John took only lines that appear in Grateful Dead songs and rearranged them to tell the story. There are forty-four lines in this song, taken from forty-two different Grateful Dead songs. How many can you indentify?


Notes

Many thanks to Emery Wilson for digital transfer from the original tape.
